This is the complete beginners tutorial for affiliate marketing. Most of these tutorials on the web focus on how to create affiliate links and put them on your site. But that’s where they leave you. We find that most bloggers, once they get that all figured out, still struggle to actually get traffic to their content, and clicks on their links. So in this video, I introduce new strategies to attract more traffic, get more clicks, and earn more affiliate income.
I mentioned Skimlinks in the video as a great way to get access to affiliate programs that won’t yet accept your site. Here’s a link: https://incomeschool.com/skimlinks
